CHI Health St. Elizabeth will serve as the primary lab for Test Nebraska.

Staff and resources from CHI Health are being directed to support the statewide imitative, which aims to test all Nebraskans for COVID-19.

At the request of Governor Pete Ricketts and with the help of the Nebraska National Guard, CHI Health is staffing a mobile medical tent at the CHI Health Center in Omaha. In addition, CHI Health St. Elizabeth will serve as the state lab where all the Test Nebraska swabs will be run.

St. Elizabeth has set up additional equipment and machines in the hospital’s laboratory. Hospital staff will man the laboratory 24 hours a day, continuously running tests to ensure a 48-hour result turnaround.
